One reason I shy away from extended warranties is because I do my own maintenance and don't keep receipts. Depending on what the problem might be, Honda may decide not to cover a warranty problem. They might still argue you did something wrong of course. The alternative is to keep to the Honda recommended service and have it done at the dealer. If you do that though, over a period of 3 years, the maintenance bill is going to be substantial. Hey, it's a $3,000 bike...maybe worth $2,000 in a year.
